Hold That Pose!
40:09 | Clive Fogelman
A yoga class of standing poses, these are the kind of poses that you will encounter during a vinyasa or faster moving hatha yoga class, but in today’s practice you’ll hold for longer than usual. This is ideal if you’re getting to know the poses, so you don’t want to hurry through poses, or if you prefer a deeper yoga class where less is more.This class is entirely wrist and sun-salutation free, perfect for those recovering from wrist and shoulder injuries.

23:32 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
This qigong flow practice starts with some warmups for the joints, cultivation of qi between the hands, and then moves into what we think of as “water salutations” – fluid movements that feel like the equivalent of yoga’s sun salutations. It’s a practice that warms the body, actively stimulates, guides and moves the qi, and helps to quiet the mind. Enjoy!

55:04 | Kiranjot
A kriya is a specific sequence of postures or actions for a specific purpose. I like to call them recipes, each step works in turn to create a specific effect for your body, mind and spirit. There are hundreds of Kundalini Kriyas, this one is called the Kriya for Elevation. It is a simple practice involving lots of flexing the spine, stretching of the legs and stimulating breath of fire. The practice finishes with a more challenge held meditation Sat Kriya which is a key practice in kundalini Yoga. It encourages circulation of panic life force through all the chakras. It’s a great practice to help relieve symptoms of depression. This sequence has breath of fire to begin with so please watch my introduction to Kundalini Yoga if this is a new practice for you or you haven’t quite mastered it yet. Tune in to this traditional Kundalini yoga class or Kriya, as they are known in the Kundalini tradition. This full Kundalini yoga class involves chanting, mudra and physical hatha yoga poses and a beautiful, long Savasana to finish.

Mandala Salutations: Twists & Core
26:48 | Katarina Rayburn
This is a feisty, swift-moving mandala-inspired sun salutation based vinyasa yoga class. If you only have a spare half hour, it’s a sure and fast way to get you flowing and sweating creatively. This flow focuses on twists and core stability; it is the espresso of morning practices with plenty of core work and some strong moves. Expect lots of lovely twists, twisted lunges and twisted half moons and inversions. This is a Mandala journey, so you will be moving 360 degrees around your mat, so perhaps watch the class first to find out where Katarina takes you, or listen intently, as you won't always be able to see the screen. This change of perspective is a perfect way to change the way you look at life, getting insight from new ways of seeing things. The class focuses on twisting and rinsing out the body; igniting Agni (internal fire), strengthening our core and activating Manipura chakra, our source of willpower and transformation, this class is tough, fast and fun. We recommend you do a warming up practice and a relaxation practice afterwards, but this one is the pure-flow for those who just need to move! You will need two bricks.
